    Default 291-3

    It occurred to me that this song qualifies.

    Here's an original. I don't think I'll ever try to write another drug song.



    Someone requested the chords for this song, so I edited it to add them.

    1.
    Heavenly [G]blue was the [C]color of the [G]flowers she [G7]showed me
    Heavenly [C]blue was the [Cm7]color of her [G]eyes
    Heavenly [G]blue was the [G7]hue of the [C]sky in the [Cm7]autumn
    And she [G]breathed heavenly [D7]blue when she [G]sighed [G7]

    2.
    I want to [C]fly with [Bm7]you through the [G]heavenly [Em]blue
    I want to [Am]take you for a long rainbow [D7]ride
    Just [G]take a little [G7]sip, and we'll [C]take a little [Cm7]trip
    And every[G]thing will be [D7]different on the other [G]side [D7]

    3. same chords as #1
    It was a warm October night and the sky it was humming
    We could hear the clouds speak in the wind
    And the moonlight fell all around us like raindrops
    And the space between our atoms was wide and thin

    4. same chords as #2 except as noted
    I want to fly with you through the heavenly blue
    I want to take you for a long rainbow ride
    Everything will be different on the other side
    When I [G]fly with [D7]you through the heavenly [C]blue [Bm7][Am][G]

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    After two days, I'm already 20 videos behind. So it probably won't make much difference if I pause and do a video myself. This is a Steely Dan song about a junkie and the guy who takes advantage of him.

    Willie Nelson released this song on April 20, 2012 (420 Day). I hope it's not too subtle.

    Concert Flea and piano.

    And, especially for today, another song from the Sixties ... where I seem to be firmly rooted! I initially understood that this song was about LSD, but now I am not so sure; although it well might have been. Donovan wrote it during a trip to India with the Beatles to learn Transcendental Meditation; which is, itself, pretty "trippy" ... I know, because I practise it!
